Answer Key : (a) -

(a)

The strinkage of the protoplast of a living cell from its cell wall due to exosmosis under the influence of a hypertonic solution is called Plasmolysis. When a cell is plasmolysed, it becomes flaccid. In a flaccid cell, turgor pressure (TP) becomes zero and DPO become equal to OP as DPO= OP- TP.
